A Nightmare on Elm Street II (2012)

Enter the Nightmare

In 1984, Wes Craven brought us the original "A Nightmare on Elm Street". The film features John Saxon, Heather Langenkamp, Ronee Blakley, Amanda Wyss, Jsu Garcia, Robert Englund, and Johnny Depp in his feature film debut. Set in the fictional Midwestern town of Springwood, Ohio, the plot revolves around several teenagers who, if they fall asleep, will be killed by Fred Krueger in their dreams, thus causing their deaths in reality. The teenagers are unaware of the cause of this strange phenomenon, but their parents hold a dark secret from long ago.
Craven produced A Nightmare on Elm Street on an estimated budget of just $1.8 million,a sum the film earned back during its first week.An instant commercial success, the film's total United States box office gross is $25.5 million.A Nightmare on Elm Street was initially met with relatively mixed critical reviews but went on to make a significant impact on the horror genre, spawning a franchise consisting of a line of sequels, a television series, a remake, and various other works of imitation.
The film is credited with carrying on many clichés found in low-budget horror films of the 1980s and 1990s, originating in John Carpenter's 1978 horror film Halloween, including the morality play that revolves around sexual promiscuity in teenagers resulting in their eventual (usually graphic) death, leading to the term "slasher film".Critics and film historians argue that the film's premise is the question of the distinction between dreams and reality, which is manifested in the film through the teenagers dreams and their realities.Critics today praise the film's ability to transgress "the boundaries between the imaginary and real",toying with audience perceptions.

In 2010, we were introduced to the remake of this classic slasher film, this time written by Wesley Strick and Eric Heisserer, directed by Samuel Bayer, and produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller. It was designed to reboot the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. The film stars Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, a role made famous by Robert Englund. Rooney Mara plays Nancy Holbrook, loosely based on the character Nancy Thompson, originally portrayed by Heather Langenkamp. Set in the present day, Freddy stalks the dreams of Nancy and her friends as they discover that they all share a common link from their childhood; they were all physically and sexually abused by Freddy before he was murdered by their vengeful parents. Now a supernatural force in their dreams, Freddy kills off the children that alerted the parents about his deeds. The remake was released in North America on April 30, 2010.

In late April of 2010, Our Writer (name withheld for confidentiality) began penning a script to become the sequel to the 2010 remake of "A Nightmare on Elm Street". The script dives into a backstory that was never explored in the original series, and combines familiar elements from the original franchise with elements of the rebooted series.
A facebook page has been created in support of the new script, which (as of this date) has not yet been recognized by New Line Cinemas or Warner Brothers Distribution.
The simple fact that New Line Cinema had expressed intrest in continuing the new series was enough for Robert M. Smith (Bob Smith) to create this facebook page. He became primary admin of the page and liason to the writer.
Fans of the franchise are joining the page under the urgence of Mr. Smith, who tells the page fans to "Keep sharing and keep scaring", and "Keep pimpin' the glove", going so far as to say "Freddy will thank you".
Mr. Smith hopes that by setting up a fanbase supporting the independently-written script, producers will be more likely to take a second look at the story.
